» Everfree Northwest Update: Charity Proceeds Delivered, Staff Positions Available

Everfree Northwest

Although it’s the offseason, there are still some loose ends to wrap up from cons, and this one is a pretty big one. At Everfree Northwest 2013, the crew there held a big charity auction, and raised a bunch of dough. Well, now that money is in the hands of those who need it. The EFNW crew has delivered the proceeds of its charity auction, totaling $21,070, to the Seattle Children’s Hospital.

Meanwhile, several staff positions have opened, like web content administrator, secretary of the committee, director of information technology, and more. If you want to get involved with the staff, send an email to [email protected]. Check behind the cut for the full list of openings.

Immediately after the 4th of July holiday, one of the MLP community’s “big” conventions got underway with Everfree Northwest 2013. Compared to last year’s spread-out convention, this one consolidated into a single hotel & convention space, which promised to improve the convention’s logistics. But how would this year’s lighter guest list compare to last year’s stellar assortment of VIPs? A pair of fans was there to cover the convention from start to finish for the Round Stable.
